Growing out gamine, with wisps. Created by Elmer Olsen, La Coupe, Montreal, 1977.   The model had an exceptionally high forehead. Feather-like wisps and Elmer to the rescue.

The knock-out Soft Body Jewelry, by Doris May, was one long piece, which wrapped around the fingers as rings, then wound around the wrists as bracelets, snaked up the arm as more bracelets, slithered across the body, then down and around the other arm, wrist, hand, fingers.
